Logan High School is a public high school in La Crosse, Wisconsin operated by the School District of La Crosse. Located on the city's north side, the 240,000 square foot school is situated on a 32-acre site in the La Crosse River Valley.
In August 1979, construction of the new Logan Senior High School was completed on the north side of La Crosse. The new school was a three-year high school during the 1979-80 school year. It became a four-year high school (grades 9-12) in 1980 with the reorganization of the district and creation of middle schools. Two classroom wings for the math, social studies and world language departments were later added. A multi-purpose addition was finished in the fall of 1997, which provides music and athletic practice and performance facilities. Today, Logan High is a two-story building of about 240,000 square feet (22,000 m2) situated on a 32-acre (130,000 m2) site in the La Crosse River Valley on the city's north side. Students from La Crosse's north side, partial south side, Campbell, Medary, and some open enrollment attendees from surrounding municipalities are served by the school.
In 2005, principal Scott Mihalovic won the La Crosse Tribune Person of the Year award stating, "Scott Mihalovic, who as principal at Logan High School provided steady leadership during a challenging period at the school."
